Andrea Levene - Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Registered Nurse
Counselling is one of the most effective ways to support individuals who may be experiencing different challenges in their lives at various times.
Hello! My name is Andrea, welcome and thank you for choosing to look at my profile.
I am qualified as a Registered Nurse and have worked within the NHS and private sector for over 30 years. As a natural progression, I decided to train as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist.
I provide a one to one therapeutic service, in which my clients will feel safe, relaxed and supported. The idea is so that you are able to take control of your own thinking and behaviour. The therapy will always be personalised and tailored to support you through the process of acceptance and change.
During the process, I will ensure trust, dignity, respect and confidentiality are maintained. It is your time to choose what you would like to talk about. I will offer you the opportunity to do so at your own pace.
I can help you with the following problems:
- work-related to stress
- Types of Depression
- Self-harm thoughts
- Relational Problems
- Health-Related changes
- Unwanted Habits
- Self Defeating Behaviours
I am bound by the National Counselling Society's Code of Ethics and professional conduct, whose aim is to ensure I am a safe and competent practitioner.
